- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 May #2
While walking home from school, a fair-skinned young girl enjoys observing the wide variety of dogs and dog-owners that pass her by. The people tend to be well-dressed, with many dog-walking women wearing fancy gowns and heels, and with the gentlemen dressed in suits, sometimes with top hats. Some dogs resemble their ownersâto humorous effectâwhile other pairs contrast greatly. Using names like Pennyfarthing and Vanderlay and featuring older styles of clothing and technology, the book suggests a bygone era of the early twentieth century. As the young girl walks, the text provides her rather straightforward commentary, which allows the illustrations to shine. Done in watercolor, pencil, and digital media, the art is gorgeous in its elegance, employing muted colors and sophisticated design. When the girl finally makes it home, the story concludes with a fun surprise: she has admired the many canine companions on her walk, but her own best friend, who greets her at the door, is a cat!
